Campion will be looking to make the most of home advantage as they aim to boost their West Riding County Amateur League title challenge against Golcar United on Saturday.

Only two of their final eight Premier Division games are at Manningham Mills, so three points against their fifth-placed Huddersfield visitors will be the minimum requirement.

Golcar are nine points behind but have played two games fewer than Campion, who are second behind championship favourites Ovenden West Riding.

Tyersal, who are not yet safe from the drop, would do their Bradford neighbours a big favour if they upset the form book and win at Ovenden.

A victory for Salts could virtually ensure their place in the top flight next season as well as piling the pressure on visitors Lepton Highlanders who are in the second relegation place.

Steeton, last season’s runners-up to Bay Athletic, start their run-in to the end of the season at home to Littletown.

Hunsworth will put the promotion ambitions on hold as they look to book a Division One Cup semi-finals berth by winning at West Horton.

Leaders Hunsworth will also be keeping a close eye on league results involving their fellow high-fliers, with second-placed Lower Hopton at lowly Bay Athletic Reserves while Ventus-Yeadon Celtic and Wakefield City – in third and fourth – go head to head.
